Dean Anna Inks Major League Deal with Yankees (Mokena)
February 18, 2014, NEW YORK - WCM commends Mokena native Dean Anna, who signed a Major League contract with the New York Yankees for the 2014 season.
The Yankees revealed this exciting announcement on Sunday, which comes on the heels of Anna's amazing 2013 season with the San Diego Padres' affiliate in Tucson, AZ, where he was awarded the title of 2013 Pacific Coast League Batting Champion, with a .311 average.
A left handed batter who occasionally plays shortstop and third base, Anna shines at second base, where his 2013 season brought a fielding average percentage comparable to the Majors.
Anna is a graduate of Lincoln - Way East high school, and attended John A. Logan College in Cartersville, IL, and Ball State University in Muncie, IN.
The 26-year-old has been in Tampa, FL for spring training since January, arriving early to train alongside veteran players like fellow Yankee, Derek Jeter.
